At the same time, the Russian Defense Minister noted that the Russian Federation ceases all contacts along the military line with Turkey, the Air Force of which, while actually aiding the terrorists, shot down the Russian bomber Su-24. The situation with the statements of the Turkish side allegedly that Su-24 was shot down in the airspace of Turkey, commented on the press secretary of the President of the Russian Federation Dmitry Peskov (quote RIA News):
The aircraft was shot down in the Syrian sky, which is a violation of international law and an extremely unfriendly act against a military aircraft of the Russian Federation. This is what we proceed from.
Recall that on the eve of the Russian Defense Ministry called the strike by the Turkish Air Force on the Russian plane "unfriendly step." Dmitry Peskov today used the term "extremely unfriendly action." This is hardly the appropriate characteristics of the Turkish attacks on Russia, the VKS of which are fighting international terrorism. In fact, the Turkish strike is, as the deputy chairman of the Italian Senate said earlier, Turkey’s entry into the war on the side of ISIS.
